Much like Comic Book Guy on The Simpsons, I’ve recently experienced the worst of the worst. Rest assured I was on the internet within minutes registering my disgust throughout Steepster. This tea came in a set purchased at Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas. The other two teas, Nutcracker and Mandarin Orange Blend, are great, but I hadn’t tried the third tea, Organic Lychee Green. In the bag, the scent is slightly floral, fruity, and familiar. I think to myself, it’ll brew a good cup. Don’t be fooled! It’s a trap! I smelt it again after I finished brewing it. It’s a scent from my past, but I can’t connect the dots. I take a sip. It’s barely palatable, and wafts of perfume permeated the air. I asked my brother to take a sip. He concludes, “It’s Bath & Body Works Cucumber Melon Lotion.” The connection registers immediately. UGH! YES! Cucumber Melon was part of the middle school experience growing up in the ‘90s. And really, who wants to relive that period of angst and uncertainty through a cuppa? I sure don’t. Luckily, my boyfriend had consumed most of it, so we don’t have to buy this tea ever again. Worst. Tea. Ever.
Flavors: Cucumber, Melon, Soap
